Starbucks’ New Color-Changing Cups Are About to Take Over Your Instagram Feed
Starbucks is gearing up for summer in the most epic way possible: We got two new Frappuccino flavors, a pink “Dragon” drink, and now this adorable line of color-changing cups in the most cheerful, summer-appropriate hues. The cups, which come in shades Rose, Citron, Sky, Apricot, and Arctic, transform into an ombré color scheme once a cold drink is added. Your iced coffee is about to get a glam makeover.
The cups are already so popular that they’re pretty much completely sold out at Starbucks locations across the country. But don’t worry! You won’t be left out of the trend. A representative from Starbucks confirmed to People that the cups will be restocked throughout the summer. You just need to make sure you keep your eye out for their return, since they’ve been selling out fast. Don’t want to wait? The cups are already popping up on Etsy and Ebay at inflated prices for true Starbucks enthusiasts.
The cup’s ombré design isn’t just a stylish vessel for all the cold brew you’ll be drinking this summer. It will also be the perfect addition to your Instagram, especially if you want to add a pop of pastel color your feed. In fact, the cups are already a sensation on social media, where people can’t get enough of the color-changing effect.
There’s another reason to love the color-changing cups: A reusable coffee cup is so much better for the environment than those paper cups which just end up in the trash.
The cups are only available for in-store purchase, where the pack of all five colors costs $16.95. When you think about it, the multi-pack is actually more fun: That way, you can pick a different color every day depending on your mood. It’s kind of like wearing a grown-up mood ring, for your coffee.
